10 Christmas Songs I Love

8

I love good Christmas music.  So I’ve decided to make a list of some of my favorite Christmas songs.  Some of the videos aren’t that great, but they’re the best I could find.  Here they are in no particular order.  Hope you enjoy!

1.  Chris Tomlin – Glory In The Highest  ~ I love every song on this CD, but O Come All Ye Faithful and Glory In The Highest are probably my two favorites.  This video is an advertisement but includes some sampling.  Enjoy!

2.  Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You ~ I may be 100% alone on this, but this song just makes me smile and tap my toes.

3.  She & Him – I’ll Be Home For Christmas ~ I can’t get enough of this group.  Very mellow and soft sounds.  You should buy the album.  It feels like you’re back a couple decades while listening.

4.  Andy Williams – It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year ~ I grew up on this version of this song.  Nothing brings back memories like hearing the songs you grew up with!

5. Johnny Mathis – Sleigh Ride ~ Another version I grew up with.  Although, on this one there have been several recen versions that I like very well!

6. O Holy Night – There are so many incredible versions of this song.  I just wanted to share with you one of my favorites from one of my favorite people.  This is my friend, Katie Gruen, singing it for us!

7.  John Lennon – Happy Xmas (War is Over) ~ I love this song.  I don’t think it will ever get old.

8.  Elvis Presley – Blue Christmas ~ No one sings it like Elvis.  But this video is a little creepy ’cause Martina just walks right in there!  I just had to share 🙂

9.  The Chipmunks – Christmas Don’t Be Late ~ It can’t be Christmas until I hear this at least 20 times…they just keep playing it!  Anyway, good memories attached to this one!

10.  Baby It’s Cold Outside – I actually like the Dean Martin version best, but the Zooey Deschanel/Will Ferrell version is pretty good.  And I think this is one of the best Christmas movies of all time.

So what are some of your favorite Christmas songs?

About the author

  • Love the list!! And yes, Elf is probably the best Christmas movie of all time in my book.
    I wish they would to a Dean Martin/Zooey Deschanel version of “Baby, It’s cold outside”. That would be awesome!!

    • I think she’s one of the best female voices singing for that song, and you just can’t beat Dean Martin in anything in my book, so I totally agree with that!

  • I love your list. Except Blue Christmas. That one almost made Tor’s “worst Christmas song” list for me! 🙂

  • You think you’re alone in #2?!?! Everyone in the English speaking world loves that song….well until Bieber effed it up.

    • Didn’t really think I was alone on the song. Am I alone that I like the whole CD? I haven’t heard the Bieber version. Don’t want to either!

      • That song comes from the best Christmas movie…nuff said :).

      • Is it on Love Actually?
